Business are always looking for online directories to submit their business, products, etc. This is a multi-million dollar industry and it continues to grow.

This courses teaches you how to build your own business directory from the ground up WITHOUT being a coding expert. All you do is follow along my step by step instruction to get it done. It's as simple as watching my screen and copying what I do.

Once your directory site is up, you have two options:
